You're never fully dressed without a handbag! Whether you prefer a lavish ladybag or a convenient crossbody, there's no denying that the perfect handbag will elevate your outfits and accentuate your style in ways that clothing often fails. Even on the catwalk, clothing is regularly transcended by the most covetable of handbags.
So why do we love our handbags so much? And why do we take the time to invest in high quality, luxury bags? It’s a question we’re sure husbands have huffed over many times, more than likely to no avail! But we’re here today with the answers.
A handbag never judges
We’ve all been there before, you’ve found the perfect outfit, it’s exactly what you’ve been looking for and of course, it looks gorgeous on the mannequin. But when it comes to trying it on, it’s not what you were expecting. The sinking feeling when you realise you’re too short, too tall, too thin or too curvy, is a disappointment like no other. Unlike clothing, a handbag will never tell you you’re too much of one thing or not enough of another. A handbag does exactly what it says it will, look beautiful and be dependable, so you can shop without the fear of disappointment.
To celebrate our careers
While it might sound pompous to say that many women buy handbags as a status symbol, it’s actually quite the opposite. It’s no secret that women often have to work twice as hard as men for similar recognition, and even once we are well-regarded in workplaces, there is often a higher standard for women to juggle work and home lives in a way that is not expected of our male counterparts. This is why high-earning, fashion savvy ladies chose to celebrate their hard work and achievements with beautiful handbags. While society might tell us status symbols are inherently wrong, the same is rarely said for men of similar stations who might choose to invest in flashy cars or golf clubs. So as hardworking, determined women, we deservingly choose to celebrate our earning power outwardly. We work hard, and we deserve luxury.
For stylish convenience
Life comes at us fast, and we need to be prepared for all eventualities. Whether you travel for work, spend your time chasing after your little ones, or just need somewhere to put your keys, daily life often means transporting far more than we can carry. Just because we live full and sometimes fast-paced lives, doesn’t mean we can’t do so in style. With a beautifully functional handbag, life can resume in effortless style, so you can do it all, while looking your best.
For the JOY!
We don’t think there’s anything more joyful than opening up a big box of SH goodies and seeing all of the gorgeous handbags and accessories you’ve treated yourself to. Expertly packaged in luxury wrapping to ensure the most joyful customer experience possible, receiving your box of joy is self-care like no other. To be able to be our best selves, we need to take time to care for ourselves, we can’t think of anything more joyful than taking the time to play dress up with our handbags and making each one uniquely yours!
The luxe of quality.
When we buy luxury, we also buy quality. Luxury means a long-term investment in high-quality Italian leathers, bespoke craftmanship and exemplary customer service. Choosing to spend more on a handbag is a logical decision. While clothing is a trend based industry, where fast-fashion reigns supreme, handbags are timeless. With so many classic and timeless styles available, you will always look the part, so you don’t need to waste time chasing trends just for them to pass with the seasons.
To express yourself!
While the function of a handbag is to conceal belongings, a lady’s choice of handbag is also inherently revealing. How we choose to present ourselves to the world is important not only for our own confidence, but also gives us some control over how we are perceived by others. When we look good, we feel good, and everyone knows it. Showing off our handbags also means expressing our tastes. Whether you love the statement of a bold print or prefer the understated and elegant look of neutral tones, how you style yourself says a lot about you. No matter what your personal style, with the right arm candy, everyone will take note of you!
